Orto is owned by the people who used to own my favourite cafe in Redfern, Sydney. Now they run this much more upscale restaurant, and it is truly delicious.
I am trying to get over my severe fear of being photographed... so here's a picture of me ready for dinner. I am wearing my new dress but you can't really tell because Ollie didn't take a full body shot (he has to get over his fear of taking photos!)
For our main course we had a whole roast duck with pickled grapes, cherries, cashews and cos lettuce (romaine for you North Americans).
Since we're total lushes, we coupled the duck with a bottle of A Retief mixed red.
Such an excellent meal! And Orto is such a cute little place. I love the decor, especially these mason jar lanterns on the patio:
